The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has made more than $140 billion in Provider Relief Fund payments to more than 400,000 healthcare providers since April 2020. As the COVID-19 pandemic begins to wind down, these providers must comply with program instructions, submit required reports, and cooperate with any audits or investigations as a condition of receiving this funding. As reporting and investigations ramp up, these requirements will present a new set of challenges for compliance professionals.
PYA Principals Angie Caldwell and Martie Ross joined Foley & Lardner Partners Jana Kolarik and Alexis Bortniker for an informal virtual discussion and Q&A as part of the PYA and Foley & Lardner LLP “Let’s Talk Compliance” series. Attendees submitted questions and participated in a dialogue about Provider Relief Funds and compliance concerns organizations are having with reporting requirements.
The 45-minute discussion was held on Friday, July 16, 2021.
A recording of the event is posted below. Additionally, a recent article published by Foley & Lardner contains answers to questions we received but did not have time to address during our live discussion.
